Here is how you can create an interesting but easy Misty Forest in your Menorah sketchbook for drawing:
The dark can certainly make things look eerie. Let’s add some mystery element to our painting by setting it in the dark. First things first, washi tape on the sides of the page for clean borders. Next let’s make a circular gradient, to add depth to the painting. Put some white gouache paint on the center of the Spiral sketchbook. Mix it with cobalt blue gouache paint in a circular motion and then blend on the paper, till you get a big circle.
Color gradient :
Now, add some ultra- marine blue gouache paint on all the four corners and blend them too in a circular motion. This will make the dark blue to pop forward and the light blue to recede into the background, creating an optical illusion.
In the woods!
Dark night and mist are the perfect recipe to create a mysterious scenery. Draw the trees in the front with black gouache paint and some trees a little behind with navy blue gouache paint. The black trees pop forward and the blue trees, along with the circular white gradient will make it look like the trees at the back are covered by mist.
Some snowflakes would add some extra effects to your painting. Dip your round brush in white paint and gently tap it with another paint brush for a splatter.
Take off your washi tape. Your woods are now lovely, dark and deep!
